The Ojja-Wojja: A Teen Horror Mystery or Whatever, You Know? is planned to be published in the Spring of 2021 and is the first of a two-book deal.
Mags says ‘The first book is called The Ojja Wojja, and is about two teen girls who accidentally unleash an evil demon that takes over their town, and it’s up to them to save the day! I’m super excited to be working on exciting, engaging, queer-positive content for the youth market. That’s the future of comics.’
